Salt Water Sunday: Beach and Happy Easter!

Happy Weekend and Happy Easter! I hope you are enjoying a wonderful time with family and friends. This weekend I am feeling especially grateful because my dear hubby is at home, and we are concentrating on spending quality time together.

Today we are planning to attend a "Worship On The Water" service before driving over to Mobile to visit both of our parents and families. The service on the water is very casual, so I won't be dressing up today. This feels a little strange for me, even DH is wondering "what should I wear"? HA, feels weird to go to "church" on the sand. 

Saturday we spent the day at the beach (after I went for my 4 miles, which I haven't been doing lately). The day was gorgeous and temperatures were in the low-mid 70's. I captured some pictures to share - hope you enjoy! 

How are you spending this holiday weekend? Hope it's a great one!

Shopaholic Favorite Sunless Tanner - And It's Buy One, Get One!

What an amazing deal - I just had to share this with you all! As you might have noticed, I am an Independent Consultant for Rodan + Fields. I signed up after falling in LOVE with all their products, and have enjoyed sharing my enthusiasm for the brand with my friends and family. 

Rodan + Fields is helping us get ready for Spring Break and Summer vacations by running a flash sale from now until March 29, 2013 at 10AM PDT. For this extremely limited time, when you buy one Essentials Foaming Sunless Tan, you get another one FREE! Two for the price of one - you can't beat that. These are normally $24 each, so you get $48 of product for $24. One for you - and one to share with a friend! (Or stockpile for yourself!) And if you're a Preferred Customer, the deal is even better as preferred customer price is just $21, so $48 worth of product for $21. (View the deal HERE

A little product detail: You can achieve a sun-kissed glow the healthy way with this lightweight, oil free and mess-free sunless tanning foam. It applies easily and dries quickly - plus the effective dual-active formula ensures even, natural looking color without exposure to the harmful UVA and UVB rays. This product contains Rodan + Fields' RF-Dcell technology, which is derived from dormant narcissus bulb extract, to "quench" the rate of cell hyper-proliferation and extend the duration of the sunless tan. Added bonus: Antioxidant vitamins A, C and E protect skin from free radical damage. 

Another thing that is important to me personally: Rodan + Fields products are not tested on animals, and we're on the PETA "good" list. 

Be sure to place your order quickly - these flash sale items tend to sell out quickly! Here's to a healthy tan!

Meet The Pink Silhouette: Spring Lilly Pulitzer GWP

Hello, Shopaholics! Everyone knows it by now - I'm a lifelong lover of all things Lilly Pulitzer, and I prefer to buy from small, female owned stores. Have you heard of The Pink Silhouette? They are a Mother and Daughter owned boutique located in Bel Air, MD. Mom Susan is an interior designer and Daughter Christina has a business degree and brings her business expertise to the table. These ladies make The Pink Silhouette a pleasure to shop with, and you can feel their enthusiasm for the business in every interaction with their customers. 

From now until March 30, they are offering a fun Lilly Pulitzer GWP promotion. With a $250 spend in Lilly, you receive a Lilly Pulitzer Easter Hat. See the pictures below for how they styled the hat with beautiful dresses from the Lilly Pulitzer Spring Collection. Don't we all NEED a little more Lilly Pulitzer in our lives - and a free Easter hat too? Sign me up! (Admission: you'll find me wearing my hat on the beach this summer...)

The Pink Silhouette has a very active Facebook page (link HERE). They often host flash sales on Facebook, and I personally have purchased from them during the flash sales. Shipping is always fast - and free! Matter of fact, I recently purchased this pink and green anchor tunic and can't wait to wear it! (remember how I told you guys yesterday, I'm obsessed with anchor prints lately?)
My sister has also ordered from The Pink Silhouette several times, and she is always pleased with their service and attention to detail. It's the little things that keep us coming back - the fast and free shipping, the thoughtfulness to send a handwritten thank you note with your package, and knowing you are supporting a small, female owned business. 

You can sign up for email updates from The Pink Silhouette with the link HERE. Also, if you're a lover of all things Vineyard Vines, be sure to check out their sister store B. Fabulous. You can "like" their Facebook page HERE

If you're interested in the Lilly Pulitzer Easter Hat GWP, contact the store via Facebook, email (, or telephone them at 410-420-6372. Be sure to tell them you heard about their special on Shopaholic In Alabama! 

Which Lilly Pulitzer ensemble above is your favorite?

Anchors Away!

Do you ever go through a phase where you are obsessed with a certain theme or design in your clothing purchases? Suffice to say, I'm going through an anchor phase lately! Some of my new favorite anchor themed purchases include the following:

J. Crew Factory, Charley sweater in Scattered Anchor, $74.50 (link HERE
J. Crew Factory, Scoopneck Button Blouse with Anchor Design, $74.50 (link HERE)
J. Crew Factory, Nautical Sequin Tank, $61.50 (link HERE
J. Crew Factory, Intarsia Charley Sweater in Nautical Rope, $54.50 (link HERE)

In case you can't tell - my little beach town doesn't have a local J. Crew, but there is a J. Crew outlet within 10 I've been wearing it out! HA! 

If you want to see how I style my anchors for "everyday wear", be sure to follow me on Instagram. I'm @shopaholicinal - and of course, I will follow you back! 

Are you also obsessed with anchors? Any recent themes to your purchases? 

p.s. Anyone else ready for spring and summer? I'm so tired of cold weather!
